There are too many variables to put into account you need to put down more specifications torque is very important.

I'm going to probably get a 36v 1000w motor!

I just had a look at electric scooter parts and at 36V 1000W's seems to be as big as they get it should work great judging by that. Electric bikes use 200-500w's but they can't accelerate the bike only keep it going after you've peddled first 1000w's should be able to accelerate it.

If you gear it correctly yes, I am sure you will need to give it a bit of a kick of with your feet though.

With suitable gearing yes - Your going to have the potential for 20 - 30 MPH - BUT you will need good streamlining.

~750 Watts equal 1 horsepower. You have about a 1/3 HP motor. You're not going to go very fast.

Depends on the size of the wheels, and how you gear the motor to them.
